Vegan Thanksgiving 2011 events! Eat with the animals! Eat outside the Bay Area!  »

Friend of Vegansaurus/dynamo activist of awesomeness Shani created this list of all the vegan Thanksgiving events around THE WORLD, and we wish we could go to all of them and hug many animals and eat everything. Since we can’t, you must live for us!

Also, we’ll do up a list of S.F. Bay Area Thanksgiving events/restaurant deals/etc. (if you want to help get that list together or know of stuff happening, email me!), and if you know of any events that aren’t listed here, hit me up and we’ll update! So basically, email me so we can be BFF and talk about how pretty we both are.

Adopt-a-Rabbit update!  »

Good news, everyone
! Anne reports that the Adopt-a-Rabbit event on Saturday was a great success! All of 14 rabbits found loving homes, including Misses Bijou and Clementine. Isn’t that lovely? And there’ll be another, even bigger bunny adoption event in a few weeks in Richmond, in case you missed this one and need a bun in your life (hint: you do)—we’ll keep you posted with details as they’re finalized. In the meantime, please direct your questions to Anne.

Thanks to everyone who went, and all the people who took home a rabbit. It’s basically your patriotic duty to adopt an animal, so consider yourselves better citizens for it. Or at least better residents, whatever. Love your animal pals, that’s what’s important.
